In recent years, the government has been undertaking several steps towards creating an environment conducive to entrepreneurs and new businesses in the state, resulting in a massive overhaul of the ecosystem. Through its various initiatives, regulatory reforms and measures to improve the ease of doing business, the Government has been encouraging investments in industry and early stage businesses.
Entrepreneurship is crucial because of the innovation, job creation and competitive dynamics that it brings into the business environment. The growth of any place is dependent on highly ambitious entrepreneurs who find and realize promising business opportunities. For places where low industrial growth and lack of diversification is observed, cutting edge businesses that focus on new technologies can revive productivity and incoming investments.
The government’s ease of doing business policies have further boosted the growth of business and industry across various states in the country. With better taxation policies, easier methods to complete incorporation documentation and greater access to loans, entrepreneurs have immensely benefited. The State of Goa continues its momentum of being one of the most vibrant landscape for innovation, strengthening its position to compete with other states to build its business and industrial ecosystem and attract top talent and investors from the rest of the country to the State, states a press release.
